Abstract

The 2000 fire season brought to the forefront the issue of severe wildland fires in the United States. To address the need for new research and for the development of predictive tools for the management of wildland fires, Congress allocated funding under the National Fire Plan (NFP) to better equip government agencies to fight and study forest fires. As part of the NFP research agenda, the Eastern Area Modeling Consortium (EAMC: http://www.ncrs.fs.fed.us/eamc/) was established as one of five Fire Consortia for the Advanced Modeling of Meteorology and Smoke (FCAMMS: http://www.fs.fed.us/fcamms/). The centerpiece of the EAMC is a PSU/NCAR MM5-based modeling system designed to improve understanding of interactions between mesoscale weather processes and fires, and to develop better smoke transport assessments and predictions.
